Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts
Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookworms. So many of the books we read have food or drinks in them, some we’d love to try, and others we’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes… If you want to participate, you can grab our logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to us in your own post.
The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.
This week’s quote comes from Kristen Ashley’s Free.
He went back to the stove to flip the burgers.
“Can I do something to help?” she asked.
So she wasn’t one of those women who sat around thinking a man had to earn his hand up her skirt and wait on her to earn a place in her heart.
Which meant the man he was would go all out to earn his hand up her skirt and a place in her heart.
“I got you,” he muttered.
“I can slice tomatoes or something.”
He turned his head to her. “I didn’t buy tomatoes.”
“Good, ’cause I hate tomatoes. But if you liked them, I’d slice them for you,” she declared before sucking back more beer.
And more promise.
“I have pickle slices,” he told her.
“Awesome,” she said, hopping off her stool. “I’ll get them out. Condiments?”
She got the shit from the fridge, including the potato salad, and wandered around him, opening drawers until she found a spoon she could shove into the salad after she busted off the top.
She also tore open two bags of the chips, got down the plates and opened the bag of sesame buns.
“Do you toast?” she asked, standing in his kitchen close to him in that killer, sexy-as-all-fuck outfit with all that hair, holding two big hamburger buns up and out to her sides.
Rush took her in.
He was wrong.
Not keeping her for a while.
She just might be a keeper.
“Am I making dinner, or are you?” he asked.
She shot him a playful smile and asked back, “Am I cramping your style, stud?”
He dropped his eyes before he lifted them again. “Is my hand gonna be up that skirt later?”
“If you let me toast buns.”
He started laughing, saying, “Toast away, baby. No way I’m gonna stop you.”

That was so cute lol. That’s how you know someone’s a keeper, when they’re willing to cut up food they don’t like just for you 😉
